It was straight uphill THE.WHOLE.WAY.
Mins and I struggled. The hike was 6 miles round trip so we were determinted to finish. Of course, it started raining when we were about 45 minutes from the top. It felt nice at first until we got closer to the top and it started raining harder and then the wind chill kicked it.
We didn't really get to enjoy the lake because it was absolutely freezing. We took some pictures and basically ran back down the mountain.
Let's just say I hate nature, bugs, and snow more than I did on Wednesday night.
I wasn't as sore as I thought I would be the next morning, but my ass and calves struggled for a few days.
